Meet Your Facilitators

defaultJennifer Sparks-Berthelot, M.Sc.
Lead Teacher, Online Learning
Online Learning Centre, Saskatoon Public Schools

Jennifer has a B. Ed from the University of Saskatchewan and a Master's degree from Texas A&M University. She has been with Saskatoon Public Schools for over ten years. She has taught in classrooms from K-5 and has spent considerable time working on the development of online resources & teacher professional development in recent years. Jennifer has always used computers in education and loves to help teachers expand their "comfort zones" to open the technology door!

In her spare time, Jennifer spends time trying to keep up with her two children and training for marathons and various triathlons. She recently finished her first IRONMAN triathlon in the summer of 2008 so if she appears to move slow and seems stiff and sore - she likely is!
